The asymptotics of the higher dimensional Reidemeister torsion for exceptional surgeries along twist knots
We determine the asymptotic behavior of the higher dimensional Reidemeister torsion for the graph manifolds obtained by exceptional surgeries along twist knots. We show that all irreducible $\operatorname{SL}_2(\mathbb{C})$-representations of the graph manifold are induced by irreducible metabelian representations of the twist knot group. We also give the set of the limits of the leading coefficients in the higher dimensional Reidemeister torsion explicitly.

Essential Surfaces in Graph Link Exteriors
An irreducible graph manifold $M$ contains an essential torus if it is not a special Seifert manifold. Whether $M$ contains a closed essential surface of negative Euler characteristic or not depends on the difference of Seifert fibrations from the two sides of a torus system which splits $M$ into Seifert manifolds. However, it is not easy to characterize geometrically the class of irreducible graph manifolds which contain such surfaces. This article studies this problem in the case of graph link exteriors.
